What is ADS-B

Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) is the backbone of the Federal Aviation Administrations (FAA) Next Generation (NextGen) National Airspace System (NAS). In order to comply with the FAA and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) mandates for ADS-B equipage and support of NextGen navigation capability, its important to understand how it will affect your aircraft operations.

How it Works

Understanding how ADS-B works will help you to gain a better understanding as to why the government is mandating it's implementation.

GPS Info

The ADS-B system acquires GPS data from satellites to have the most accurate data possible.

Ground Station Reporting

The ADS-B system simultaneously broadcasts position data to ADS-B "In" capable aircraft and ground stations to give other aircraft and controllers the most up-to-date information.

More About ADS-B

When Should I Equip ADS-B?

When you're required to equip for ADS-B depends largely on where you fly. In the United States, you are required to equip ADS-B "Out" by 2020. But in other parts of the world, you may be required to equip much sooner. Regardless of regulations, you can equip today to start taking advantage of the benefits of ADS-B.

What is ADS-B In and ADS-B Out?

With ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast), you'll be required to broadcast your position information to ADS-B ground stations and other aircraft. This is called ADS-B Out. But those ground stations are also broadcasting valuable information, such as weather and traffic advisories that you can use if your aircraft is equipped to receive it using ADS-B In technology.

What is an approved ADS-B position source?

With ADS-B, each aircraft needs an approved ADS-B position source to calculate its precise position using highly accurate GPS data. This position is then broadcast to Air Traffic Controllers and other ADS-B In equipped aircraft in their vicinity.

Who needs ADS-B?

Anyone who flies in controlled airspace will need an ADS-B Out solution. But even if you dont currently fly in controlled airspace, there may still be situations where you'll be required to be ADS-B Out compliant in the future.
